I was once “thick”, “chubby”, “chunky”, and whatever other words you’d use to describe an unhappy somewhat overweight individual. I lacked confidence, I hated the way my clothes fit me, I felt tired, I dreaded wearing a bikini around friends, and I hated seeing myself in pictures. 😔😖⠀
For a long time I tried to do it all on my own. I spent soooo much time reading articles online, following my favorite fitness models, trying to get as much free information as possible. I even earned my NASM Personal Training Certification. I applied all that I learned but I still wasn’t getting the results I wanted. Why not? Because all the information was just too vague and too broad.
In 2014, I hired a coach who helped me decipher EXACTLY what I needed to do to achieve the lean physique I so badly wanted. Thirteen weeks later, I competed in my first NPC bikini competition and won the overall title. I took an extreme approach to achieve an extreme look – neither of which were realistic or healthy. I found myself developing a bad relationship with food and body dysmorphia.
Before I could let my negative thoughts get the best of me, I started to educate myself. Instead of solely aesthetics, I became interested in overall health, wellness, and longevity. Over the years, I shifted from strict meal plans to a macros based approached where I could enjoy a more balanced lifestyle. Now, I focus more on how I feel and perform rather than the number on the scale.
In 2018 I left my in-person personal training job to pursue full-time online nutrition coaching. And today, I couldn’t be happier to help teach you my ways so you can live confident, strong, and free as me!
